How to pay for your visa?
When you apply for a visa, you do not have to pay immediately. You pay when you come to withdraw it. When the Extranjeria has received your documents and filed your application in their system, you will find a document like the one below in your membership area on their website. You need to print it and go to the bank with it. Keep the payment receipt, as they will ask for it when you go to Extranjeria to withdraw your visa.
